MANILA – The son of Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) director general Nicanor Faeldon Sr. has been arrested by authorities during a raid conducted in a suspected drug den on Friday in Naga City.
Naga City police spokesperson Senior Police Officer II Toby Bangon said in a television interview that Nicanor Faeldon Jr. was arrested in a raid, where seven sachets of suspected shabu were seized.
Faeldon Jr. along with three other suspects were charged with violation of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. The arrested will also undergo drug tests.
Faeldon Sr., in a press statement, said that he will step down from his position if ever his son will be proven to be involved in illegal drug trade or is found positive from illegal drugs.
“In any event, if the police investigation will show that my son, Nicanor Jr., is indeed a drug pusher and therefore a menace to the society, then there is no need prosecute or jail him,” Faeldon Sr. said.
“I will personally obliterate him from the face of the earth,” added Faeldon Sr., who also said that he will resign from his current position BuCor.
Curiously, Faeldon Sr. was also allegedly involved in drugs with P6.4 billion worth of shabu smuggled into the country during his time at the Bureau of Customs./PN
